The Language of Jane Austen.
An examination of the use of language in Austen's novels, to illucidate the morals and meanings she intends to convey. Do we become accustomed to her meaningful use of certain words through repeat reading of her works, and do we then assign more moral value to them? A sophisticated and thought-provoking analysis. Jacket with several tears. Previous owner marginalia and lots of underlining and comments throughout the book. Oxford: Basil Blackwell.1972. Hb. No jacket. USED. $3.00
